Name: Mari Laperashvili
Hometown: Reykjavik, Iceland
Influence: Her mother
Outfit: Shoes, Jeffrey Campbell; tights, Hue; dress, Massimo Dutti; jacket, Zara; earrings, Accessorize
With a designer for a mother, it’s no wonder where senior Mari Laperashvili gets her style. Here, she wears a simple black dress over tights as well as a paisley printed jacket with gray trim accents. The jacket’s metallic trim gives the outfit a vintage feel. The real showstopper, though, is her leather wedged studded heels, gorgeous in shape and simple in design.
Name: Melissa Delgado
Influence: Mila Kunis
Outfit: Jacket, Jones New York; jeans, Express
Black is easy to work with, but sometimes it’s worth adding some color to your footwear. Senior Melissa Delgado is wearing a pair of light green boots with a tan wedge. The wedge adds height as well as a little edge without making the shoe too uncomfortable. She pairs this with a skinny pair of jeans and a stylish gray jacket with a belt.
